Stayed for 3 nights last week using the Inn as a base for walking and local sightseeing. Very pleased with the accommodation, staff all very efficient and helpful, food absolutely perfect, decent portions and very tasty (the two don't always go hand in hand), we used the Bistro each night. The Inn is in a good location just off of... More

We have eaten many times at The Pheasant over several decades and it has never let us down. This time it was for Sunday lunch for four, in the Fell Restaurant rather than the Bistro which can seem a little noisy when full. Orders were taken as we enjoyed drinks in the lounge but we did not have to wait... More

This is a very pleasant hotel. A friend and I stayed for one night in August 2014. The room was fine and the food (both breakfast and dinner) excellent. The staff are helpful and attentive. The location is good for Keswick and the northern fells generally. Although just off the A66, one is not aware of traffic noise.

The Pheasant is pub we have being going to for lunch for a decade or more on our annual visit to the Lake District. This year it was a disappointment. The Real Ale remains of high quality, so that's good. But the food this time was pretty dire. The Pheasant is up-market with prices to match. The Fish Pie my... More

Last week end was just one of many breaks we've had at The Pheasant. Once again the staff and service were excellent. Also the sign of a well run business is " when the boss is away and the service is still excellent" suggest everything is in order!", the Director/Manager was having a break also. The food both nights in... More

we just got back from a three-night stay at the Pheasant, and loved it. We have stayed there before & have never been disappointed; it is welcoming, comfortable, cosy & tasteful and the food is excellent. The bedrooms are charming & comfortable (though some could do with freshening up a bit as the wallpaper is peeling in some parts) &... More

Tried a number of times to get in. Always booked. Surely a good sign Was more organised this time The staff were great knew the menu and could help with my wife's dietary requirements. Costs a little more than most but worth the extra It's worth the drive out of Keswick.

The Pheasant Inn nestles in the loop of a country lane near the head of Bassenthwaite Lake, near Cockermouth. Its low, solid exterior is typical of older houses, farms and hotels in the Lake District. Its interior is far from typical; it is warm and welcoming with two lounges - the smaller one used mostly by residents - both of... More

Found the Pheasant Inn along a somewhat bumpy side-road just off Bassenthwaite Lake. Last Tuesday we'd arranged to meet friends for lunch in the Bistro, but were invited to get together before the meal either in the Bar or the little front lounge. We chose the lounge since it had comfy chairs... A friendly waitress helped us through the menu... More
